ISerializerFactory Interface

Provides a means for creating a software component that can serialize any part of a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application's content to a manufacturer's proprietary format. 

Namespace:  System.Windows.Documents.Serialization
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public interface ISerializerFactory
Interfaces cannot be used directly in XAML; see types that implement this interface.

XpsSerializerFactory in the System.Windows.Xps.Serialization namespace is Microsoft's implementation of this interface for serialized XML Paper Specification (XPS) content.

Notes to Callers:

We recommend that you implement this interface only with a document format serializer that you wish to register using the RegisterSerializer method. Accordingly, we recommend that you not call your implementations of ISerializerFactory methods directly.
